Nobleza del Sur
Miguel Sánchez Sagra started Nobleza del Sur in 1640 and passed the family’s olive tradition in Los Añadios-Jaén (Andalucía) down through 12 generations. The Peñuelas-Sagra family continues working and taking care of these same olive groves, maintaining this agricultural activity. This family runs a farm of more than 300 hectares of olive fields and maintains their own mill to ensure the most advanced processing of their special EVOOs.
This is our second year offering their award winning Picual EVOO. It is grown in their olive groves with characteristics typical of the soil that give it its personality, character and fruity profile as consequence of a unique continental Mediterranean microclimate and fertile lands close to Guadalimar river.
Centenarium Premium is obtained from their “Vista Alegre” farm located in the heart of Jaén countryside. This farm enjoys a unique Mediterranean microclimate with plenty of morning dews by its proximity to Guadalimar river, which influences its excellent characteristics, giving it its seal of differentiation.
As farmers, they have combined tradition with modernity to obtain the best expression of their cultivations. They use the latest technological advances in olive growing and olive oil production.
Each harvest, they select only the best quality olives at their optimum maturation moment to gain the intense aromas, green fruity equilibrium, intense complexity and elegant structure for exquisite oils – all processed in a very low temperature milling environment. Their grassy aromas remind reflect the plants and flora that live together in their olive fields, the result of an agriculture that respects the environment.
